SO WHAT MAKES HEMP OIL HEALTHY?

Hemp seeds are rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3 and insoluble fibre. They are a good source of tocopherols, Vitamin E and antioxidants. They’re packed with minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus, plus microelements like strontium, thorium, arsenic and chromium.

The oil can be used to increase immunity, counteract aging skin and improve cardiovascular health and treat symptoms and pain associated with cancer. Several studies show that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process and fight psoriasis and other auto-immune conditions such as cancer.

SIGNIFICANT HEALTH BENEFITS:

• Hemp contains gamma-linolenic acid, which is eventually converted to the protective hormone prostaglandin PGE1 that regulates the hormonal balance and supports menopausal health.

• Due to its high content of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, hemp oil has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer. It is especially useful for dry, tired or dehydrated skin and nails. It increases the skin elasticity and water retention capacity in tissues.

• Getting the right balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can be tricky for vegetarians and vegans. Hemp oil has the optimal ratio of these acids.

• Can help lower cholesterol levels by accelerating metabolic processes. With a faster metabolism, fats burn at a quicker rate and are not deposited on the artery walls.

• Due to its low carbohydrate and sugar content, hemp oil is can be a great food additive for diabetics. The nutrients present in it can help moderate blood sugar levels.

• Psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acids in the body. The fatty acids present in hemp oil help improve skin oxygenation and hydration.

• Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids also improve immunity and regulate intestinal flora, thus building a natural barrier against microbes and increasing the resilience of the body. This assist in effectively helping cancer patients and patients with other autoimmune conditions.

• Essential fatty acids are necessary for a healthy cell membrane structure. They also prevent the demyelination, the destruction of the myelin sheath (a membrane that protects the nerve cells). This helps in many conditions associated with nerve damage and neuromuscular pain.

• Like other compounds high in omega-3s, hemp oil can thin your blood, reducing blood clots and varicose veins.

PRECAUTIONS

• Hemp oil can have an anti-clotting effect on the blood. People who suffer from heart diseases and take blood thinners should avoid it (or at least check with us before use)

• Large doses of hemp oil can cause nausea, diarrhoea and/or abdominal cramps. For this reason, hemp oil should be kept out of the reach of children.

• High temperatures can denature the unsaturated fats of hemp oil and turn them into saturated fats.

• Stock ordered and manufactured per patient. Kindly order and pay first. Stock available within 7-10 working days* - Supplied
